RIP, Robin Williams

Oh no! Just heard this on the news, apparent suicide. Goodbye to a brilliant comedic mind.

Depression is an awful disease...many brilliant minds have left us.

So true Dawg.

I lost my brother to suicide 40 years ago, it's a grief like no other. He also was brilliant and one of the funniest people I've ever known. I feel so so sorry for his family.

So sad. There are very few celebrities that matter much to me. Robin Williams was one of the few.

Such a marvelous talent and comedy genius. By all reports, he struggled mightily with substance abuse and was sorely afflicted with depression. Such a tremendous loss.
He was one of my favorites as well. Ain't many comedians that can make me laugh out loud. He was one that could and did.
